The Tracker Sampler Package contains several video analysis and modeling experiments from mechanics to spectroscopy. It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive containing Tracker (video analysis and modeling tool), movies, and some initial analysis. Tracker, a video analysis and dynamical modeling program, is an Open Source Physics tool.

9-12: 4F/H1. The change in motion (direction or speed) of an object is proportional to the applied force and inversely proportional to the mass.

9-12: 11B/H3. The usefulness of a model can be tested by comparing its predictions to actual observations in the real world. But a close match does not necessarily mean that other models would not work equally well or better.

11. COMMON THEMES
11B (9-12) #1. The basic idea of mathematical modeling is to find a mathematical relationship that behaves in the same ways as the objects or processes under investigation. A mathematical model may give insight about how something really works or may fit observations very well without any intuitive meaning.
